Littleton Rotary members have been volunteering at the 9Health COVID-19 Vaccination sites in various places throughout our community. Directing drivers arriving at sites and helping with paperwork are just some of the tasks club members are helping with. Ever alert to community needs, Littleton Rotary continues to assist when the need arises. A big Thank-You to the 9Health organization and to all our volunteers.
 
It's not all work for Littleton Rotary Club members these days. In spite of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, club members have found numerous ways to enjoy each other's company both online and in-person. Recently, club member and former City Council member and past Mayor of Littleton, Phil Cernanec organized monthly bike rides for interested club members and friends. Having extensive knowledge of the history of Littleton, Phil led the first group of riders along a route rich in historic sites which showcased the early years of Littleton. As the season progresses, more rides with interesting destinations are planned. It's a joy to be a member of an organization that not only serves our community and the world, but has fun together doing it.
 
Littleton's Gracefull Cafe, 5610 S. Curtice St., hosted its monthly free Community Breakfast recently and Littleton Rotary Club volunteers, their friends, and family provided the staffing. Funding provided by the Littleton Rotary Foundation covered the meal costs. Many friends in the community look forward to their free community breakfasts every month. Friends from all backgrounds get to enjoy a meal together at no cost to them, unless they wish to donate towards Grace in Action meals. $1343 in donations was raised beyond the cost of the breakfast. These donations will provide Grace in Action (free) meals to friends who really need it. This unique Littleton restaurant is a community treasure, and Littleton Rotary is proud to support such a worthwhile enterprise.
 
 
  
The Littleton Rotary Club raised $91,333 as a fundraiser for Nourish Meals on Wheels. Originally planned as an in-person event, the club pivoted to a virtual appeal when the event had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Due to the generosity of Rotarians and many community members, we were able to raise a significant amount of money to support Nourish Meals on Wheels in its mission to provide meals to the seniors in our community. The amount raised was matched by a generous donor, leading to an even larger contribution to Nourish Meals on Wheels.

Rotarians recently partnered with Friends of The Dillon Ranger District (FDRD) to restore the damaged fencing at the top of Loveland Pass. This heavily trafficked and popular tourist spot is remarkable for its scenic beauty. It's also popular as the trail head for the West Ridge Trail leading to the summit of the 12, 479’ mountain locally known as Rotary Peak. The old fencing helped to keep visitors on the established paths and off sensitive terrain, but had deteriorated to such a degree that Rotarians determined something needed to be done. It was an embarrassment to have visitors from around the world see the broken-down condition of the approach to one of our state's significant scenic wonders – the Continental Divide at 11,990'.
 
Joining with the FDRD, members of the Summit County and Littleton Rotary clubs worked together in restoring all the damaged buck-and-rail sections, and adding several new sections. Materials were secured and the project was directed by the FDRD Project Manager Doozie Martin. Public service trail maps and guides produced by Rotary Club donations here happily received by visitors and hikers. Those who successfully made the 1.5 mile hike to Rotary Peak were presented with a commemorative “I Climbed Rotary Peak” pin as evidence of their accomplishment.
 
Rotary once again proves that it has the means and ability to work together addressing needs at home and around the world. Future projects on the trails at Loveland Pass and on Rotary Peak are in the process of being evaluated.
 
On a recent Saturday, members of the Rotary Club of Littleton volunteered to help TLC Meals on Wheels (MoW) clients by cleaning up their yards.  Approximately 20 volunteers brought their tools, gloves, raking, and tree trimming skills spent the morning working in the yards of two senior TLC MoW clients. 
 
On the second Monday of each month, Littleton Rotary members volunteer at Project C.U.R.E. headquarters sorting donated new and surplus medical items. Those items are then boxed, palletised, and readied for shipment to clinics and hospitals in some of the world’s most critical areas. Teams of highly trained Project C.U.R.E. specialists travel to areas of need and do on-site evaluations. Once the evaluation of needs are completed, Project C.U.R.E. works to prepare the shipment and secures funding for transport.
Littleton Rotary spearheaded the fundraising effort that ultimately lead to the purchase of Project C.U.R.E’s. world headquarters located in Centennial, CO.
